Book Description:

Tibetans preserved whole mountains that served as pilgrimage sites, forbidding cutting trees and killing animals. In Thailand, monks and citizens are using Buddhist religious values to save trees and large birds. These and other efforts show that solutions to environmental problems can—and must—begin with citizen politics and a revived morality of fairness.

About the Author:

E. N. Anderson, PhD, is professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of California, Riverside.

Book Description Praeger. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 251 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.5in. x 1.1in.Traditional societies have much to teach the modern world about conservation and environmental management. The Pursuit of Ecotopia: Lessons from Indigenous and Traditional Societies for the Human Ecology of Our Modern World argues that the root of our environmental crisis is that we have not devised modern ways to induce people with diverse interests to think and act cooperatively to secure shared interests. We take a short-term, narrow view of resource management and ethical conduct instead of a long-term, global view of ecotopiaa conception in which the destructive corollaries of consumerism are curbed by emotionally grounded policies and ethics of sustainability, social justice, and stewardship. In this controversial and brilliantly written book, author E. N. Anderson maintains that the world can escape impending ecological disaster only by embracing a political and ethical transformation that will imbue modern societies with the same shared sense of emotional rationality practiced by traditional cultures. He draws lessons from ecologically successful traditional societiesand also draws cautionary tales from traditional societies that have responded maladaptively to disruption and failed ecologically as a result. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9780313381300
